Roasted Farmer’s Market Veggies with Berbere Spice and Tofu

I made these lovely skewers with organic baby beets, baby portabella mushrooms and purple, white and orange carrots from the new Sunset Strip Farmers Market but you can substitute with whatever is in season. Pumpkin, sweet potato, zucchini, cherry tomato, Brussel sprouts etc. would all be delicious. Try to cut everything approximately the same size so they cook evenly. If you’re using asparagus in the mix reserve and add after 20 minutes. Berbere is a delicious Ethiopian spice blend available at specialty and ethnic food markets and online or you can  make your own.   Enjoy! -Jacq
